I just completed my first online course using your DVD based lecture for College Trigonometry. At first I thought that I would struggle not having direct one-on-one communication with my instructor. That has certainly not been the case.
I sought out your name and email address because I had to let you know what a joy it has been learning from your lectures. I do not exaggerate when I say I struggled in my academic level math courses in high school. During the couple of college math classes I have taken I also had some difficulty fully grasping some concepts. I never thought that a pre-recorded lecture would blow away any experience I would have in a regular class room. You have been the best math teacher I have ever had, bar none. I never have any questions because you explain it all and in such an enthusiastic, attention grabbing way!
I could honestly go on and on with compliments for your teaching methods and personality. I just wanted to say thank you for a great experience.
You sir are an outstanding teacher of mathematics and related courses. I have been teaching (students) mathematics for over 37 years and when I come across textbooks wherein you are hosting the video and/or DVD lectures, I look no further for math related materials; you are, as we say in Maine, “Top Shelf.
I, as well as other of my colleagues, integrate your excellent presentations into our classes. I'm very sure that our students have greatly benefited from your clear, precise, easy to understand explanations, and, that I have become a much better teacher as a result of your excellent work. I wish you a long and prosperous journey as you continue teaching and sharing your great gift with others, through media as well as live in the classroom. Thank you.
